One of the few really fun games for your watch

I've tried many games for my watch. This is one of the few that are really playable. I really enjoyed this a lot. It's graphics are great and the controls are super easy. It's deceptively simple in design, yet is really challenging. But, if you are going to play on your phone, then just know that the ads are beyond Anoying. Of course you can always shell out $$$ to enjoy this game on your phone and remove the ads.

Hi. We’re really delighted that you enjoyed playing the Apple Watch version of Dare the Monkey. Just to clarify, Dare the Monkey is completely free to download for iPhone and Apple Watch. This is the reason why we have ads in the game. Thanks again for playing Dare! 😊👍

Dare the monkey

I think this is a very nice game, especially for the Apple Watch, but the one thing that could be improved is to make double jump level 8 a little easier. Also, sometimes i will tap 2 times to make 2 jumps, but for some reason i will die on the first jump, then shoot up dead on the second one. Last thing: I wish you could use the currency in game to buy carecters or checkpoint restarts or to unlock a level, because I have 46,500 coins built up and i can’t do anything with them. Overall I would recommend this game as it is very fun and challenging.

The new update killed this game.

This game was the only fun and playable game on the Apple Watch. Although in the past we used to tap on the screen to jump and sometimes when pressing the screen to long and menu would therefore pop up, which can be disturbing but I think you get a hang of it and therefore the game was playable and I was able to reach a score of 202 on my watch.

With the new DIGITAL CROWN FEATURE, it is therefore even more difficult to maneuver and I’ve noticed that if you role down the crown you can jump even higher than ever before which therefore kills you if you are not careful.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE a new Update were you can change how you want to make the monkey jump on the Apple Watch, either TAPPING THE SCREEN or TURNING THE DIGITAL CROWN.

Hi. Thanks for the suggestion. We have now released v1.2.19 of Dare the Monkey, which allows you to use either the watch's Digital Crown or touch the screen to jump. Enjoy!
